Nepal - Culture
By Ekaterina Zhdanova-Redman
  

1     The culture of Nepal is truly unique. Nowhere on earth can you find a way of life like in Nepal. This is partly because of Nepal's geography and partly because of its age. Nepal has been an organized society for at least 1,500 years, and people have been living in Nepal's Kathmandu Valley for another 2,000 years. Nepal's location between northeast India and southwest China puts it in the middle of an important Asian trade route. Both of these reasons helped shape modern Nepalese culture.
 
2     A critical part of Nepalese life is religion, and most in Nepal practice Hinduism. Another big portion of the Nepalese are Buddhists. Hinduism is said to be the oldest religion on earth, and it's a fairly complex religion. Hinduism dates back to at least 1500 BC, where it found its beginning in the Indus River valley in northern India and nearby Pakistan.
 
3     Hinduism is different from many other religions for many reasons. One is because Hindu doesn't recognize one founder of their religion, as Christians do with Christ or Muslims do with Muhammad. Hindus also don't have one sacred book of teachings as other religions do. Hindus believe in the phrase "all rivers lead to one ocean," meaning that God accepts all worshipers, regardless of what religion they belong to. Because of this, Hindus don't try to convert others to Hinduism.
